There are three categories of information we collect:
Information you choose to give us
Information we get when you use our services
Information we get from third parties
Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.
When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic Flarie account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: your first name, last name, email address, gender and your birthday. To compete for prizes you’ll have to verify your account using your phone number. We take this information to prevent people from cheating by having several accounts.
If you choose to sign in with Facebook we will also get your Facebook id and your profile picture and a list of your friends Facebook ids that are already using Flarie to connect you to your friends
To make it easier for others to find you, you have the opportunity to upload a profile picture that will be publicly visible on our services
If you win a game we may ask for additional information such as your full home address in order to be able to send you the prize
Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as feedback or if you decide to participate in our surveys about Flarie
When you contact customer support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer
When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for instance, that you played a particular game or won a specific prize. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:
